Full Text Reviews:

School Library Journal - 03/01/2015 Gr 4–6— Edgar and Allan, the telepathically linked great-great-great-great-grandnephews of horror writer Edgar Allan Poe, go up against the nefarious Professor Perry in this series conclusion. Fiendish plots and intrigue, literary references to Poe and other authors (Emily Dickinson and Walt Whitman make cameos), and Zuppardi's black-and-white sketches all add to the appeal. Purchase where the previous two books were popular. - Copyright 2015 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
